There is a risk of theft, robbery and pick-pockets in Israel, particularly in Jerusalem in the evenings and at night. Take extra care when you go out at night.
Due to recurring unrest, you should avoid the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Anyone travelling around the country needs to be vigilant and careful. Remember to act discreetly, particularly during the Sabbath, and respect religious traditions and customs. This applies throughout Israel.
We recommend that you drink bottled water only. Use taxis rather than public transport.
Sandstorms are common in spring and summer.
